Exposure to high temperatures could have long-term effects
NASCAR's new car, or COT, has made remarkable strides in safety, but some design features have created problems with heat inside the cockpit.
One of the "hot" topics [sorry, couldn't resist] of late is how hot the interiors of the new Sprint Cup cars get during competition. My first reaction to all the reporting on it was to declare today's drivers to be a bunch of wimps compared with drivers of days gone by, but I uncharacteristically decided to do some research to see if the new car really is hotter than the old ones from the past.
